This album along with Herb Alpert's works helped create the quintessential 1960s percussive and trumpet "hip" sound. From the Liner notes: "Enter...Percussive Mariachi...a unique blending of musical spices, tailor-made to pique an appetite; combining the mellowness of Mexican trumpets, the immediacy of "go-go" rhythms and the fascination woven by percussion instruments." Produced by Sonny Lester.
Extracted from the original release 1967 Ampex reel-to reel tape at 7 1/2 IPS...using a 1977 Teac 2340 4-track--> modified Hafler 110 preamp-->modified Scarlett 2i2-->Soundforge. No post processing or noise reduction was used.

Wow... Where does that exist on the web?
Great find. It took me a while before I decided to listen to it... Just because it is 240z's favorite and he shows good taste in his uploads I gave it a try.
Great sounding digitization, funny 60s sound that feels like a movie soundtrack. An unlikely mix of 60s James Bond and Jacques Tati movies - if the visual image translates into sound. Relaxing and fun.
Thank you for putting it up there.
